A three-day Active Hope workshop, How to Face the Mess We’re in Without Going Crazy, will take place from 7 to 9 p.m., May 30, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., May 31 and June 1, in St. Francis, Wisconsin. The workshop will be led by Kathleen Rude, environmentalist, writer, Work That Reconnects facilitator and shamanic practitioner (GaiaWisdom.org).

This groundbreaking workshop will help participants transform fear and despair into inspiration and a sense of empowerment. They will experience the healing power of gratitude, find compassion in honoring their pain for the world, embrace their connections with each other and with the self-healing powers in the web of life, and realize their potential to make a difference.

Active Hope includes interactive exercises, movement, inspirational readings and teachings, and simple ceremonies. This engaging experience gives tools for dealing with the challenges of living in a world bombarded with personal, local and global crises and causes.
